Avri Roel Downey is famous for being the daughter of Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey.
Downey is the only daughter of Robert and Susan on November 4, 2014. She is the granddaughter of Robert Downey Sr. (former actor and filmmaker) and Elsie Ann (actress).
Robert Downey Jr. officiated the news of Avri’s birth through his Facebook page.
After 9 months of intensive development, Team Downey is pleased to announce our 2014 fall/winter project.
Principal photography commenced 11-14 and will continue until she says, “Dad! You are embarrassing me…I’m 30, this has gotta stop.”
Yep…Avri Roel Downey joined the party @ 3:22 a.m. on November 4th…she’s 7lbs even, spans 20 inches, and is accompanied by a variety of Susan’s traits that have seemingly overwritten my “junk DNA.”
I’ll post pics here + there when I’m not too busy staring..
The Meaning of Her Name
Avri Roel Downey’s first name has no special meaning, but her middle name, ‘Roel’, has a lot of history.
“Ro” comes from Downey’s father, Robert Downey Sr., and his wife, Rosemary. As Susan’s mother is named Rosie, it also honors her. The last two letters “el” honors Downey’s mother Elsie and Susan’s father Eliot Levin.
Avri Roel Downey is being raised alongside two elder brothers, Indio Falconer Downey (half-brother), and Exton Elias Downey (biological brother).
Her elder half-brother, Indio Falconer was born on September 7, 1993. Robert welcomed his first child with his first wife Deborah Falconer.
Her biological brother, Exton Elias Downey was born on February 7, 2012. She is two years younger than him.
Parents got Married in 2005
Downey’s parents, Robert and Susan first met on the set of the film, Gothika in 2003. It was love at first sight for Robert but the same can’t be said for Susan. The Iron Man star proposed to Susan, but she initially rejected his proposal.
They later started dating and during Susan’s 30th birthday celebration, the pair got engaged. The duo married on August 27, 2005.
